The article analyzes the genesis of the concept of urban blight in urban renewal policies that were implemented in the fifties and sixties in the cities of the United States. The goal is to highlight the discriminatory logic that accompanied the imposition of this term in the public debate and its consequences on removing African American families from the central areas (inner cities) of American cities. Therefore, the construction of the urban blight is part of the broader discourse on the racialization of space that characterizes the US urban experience.
Keywords: urban renewal, race, urban marginality, blight, inner city, slum
